101 "William HOWE, about 8 years old, and his brother, James HOWE, about 11 or 12, left Bristol, England as cabin boys on one of John CAMBRIDGE's ships on its return to Prince Edward Island sometime around 1822 - 1824. William learned the shipbuilding trade, but, like his brother, James, he also farmed. In the 1841 census he was leasing 100 acres; from the 14 acres of cultivated land, he harvested 20 bushels of wheat, 70 bushels of oats, and 400 bushels of potatoes. He owned one horse, four cattle, six hogs and nine sheep. William learned that this land, situated somewhere close to where the railroad tracks later crossed the road between Murray Harbour and Murray River and possibly in part of Abney, was not the best farmland. In 1842 he borrowed money to buy 50 acres of land in Guernsey Cove. That was the land on either side of the road, from shore to the back woods that now has all the farm buildings on it. William had only four years to pay off the mortgage, a little over 20 per year.

Their first dwelling house, as far as we know is now the barn farthest west and farthest away from the present day house, which was built about 1877.

In 1856 William began negotiating to buy the 50 acres of land that bordered the west side of his farm from Paul DUNN for the sum of 150 pounds. The deal fell through and it was not until 1865 that William got legal possession of the second half of his 100-acre farm. He also got a building that had been a store operated by the Dunns. It was moved across the field and is now just west of the Howe house. It's the one with the white strip down the centre of the roof. (2004)

In 1888, William who was by now a widower aged 74, decided to make a trip to Charlottetown. The Murray Harbour train did not operate until 1905 so William travelled alone by horse and buggy. Somewhere around the Cherry Valley area something spooked his horse and William lost control of it. After a few anxious minutes a boy named Charlie who was in the vicinity sprang into action and managed to catch and stop the horse.

William talked to Charlie, thanked him for saving his life and then he asked to meet the boy's parents. William could see that Charlie's parents had several children and not a great deal of money, so he made a proposal to the parents. He said something like this, "I'm on my way to Charlottetown but I'll be back in a day or two. If you wish, have Charlie ready. I'll take him home with me and see that he gets a trade."

Well, Charlie did come home with William. My sister still has the little wooden trunk that he brought with him. Charlie became a silversmith in United States and kept in touch with the Howes. When Milton and Ethel were married Charlie sent them a cake plate with a pierced design in the metal". Written by Rena Howe, 2004.

102 "William Morgan was baptized at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, age 3, in January 1867." DUPUY, William Morgan (I11852)
 
103 "William TURGOOSE was born in Lincolnshire, England. He first immigrated to Illinois, U.S.A. While there, he developed a horse trading business, ran a threshing machine and other agricultural pursuits. In 1861 he trekked across the plains to California in the covered wagon mode of those days. He arrived in Sacramento when that district was experiencing a flood. Hearing of the Cariboo gold strike he sold some of his horses. He kept four and landed with them in Victoria. He went to work with the horses on the old Esquimalt Road. After saving enough money, he sold his horses and headed for the Cariboo, where he bought interest in the famous Ruby Claim on Williams Creek. After two years he sold out his claims and came back to Victoria. and decided to settle in the District. He went out into Saanich and bought a farm originally owned by a H.B.C. doctor by the name of Tuzo. It was being then operated by a man named Fronton, probably on a rental basis, as he does not appear on a voters list of that period. This man planted a fifteen acre apple orchard. The farm consisted of five hundred acres and William TURGOOSE paid $10.00 an acre for it. The Northwest corner of this land is the centre of Saanichton. It stretched East to the Indian Reserve and South to the Michell farm. Part of it now is called the Saanichton Farm, while another part is owned by a grandson, Willard MICHELL.

After purchasing the farm, Turgoose made a trip to England, then back again to Illinois to marry his sweetheart, Emma POPE, then back to Saanich in 1865 to finally settle down. He bred purebred horses of the Morgan strain and introduced the Durham or Shorthorn breed of cattle. The progeny of the horses were in demand by the livery stables, while the progeny from his cattle became the foundation stock for many cattle ranchers. William TURGOOSE died in 1885, but his wife survived him till 1922. They had a family of seven children, one boy and six daughters. The first child, Fanny, remained a spinster. Emma married a building contractor by the name of MERKLEY. Annie married W. D. MICHELL of the pioneer Michell family. Carrie became Mrs. POPE. Mr. POPE was a sawmill man. Lottie was the wife of Bob STEWART, a miner. Winnie married Jack BROOKS, son of Henry James BROOKS, who had bought the old Deeks farm, or Logana Farm of years later. William TURGOOSE did not occupy any civic positions but he was keenly interested in the development of the district and gave land for the South Saanich School. The proviso of the gift was that it could only be used for educational purposes. The land still belongs to the school district, but the school itself was abandoned many years ago. There was a Post Office established at the Turgoose place, the forerunner of the Saanichton P.O." 
TURGOOSE, William (I2768)
 
104 "William was an elder in the church for many years. He was a quiet man and never drank or smoked". William and Jane HAWKINGS had six children; he had four children with Jane SENCABAUGH. BECK, William (I848)
 
105 "With regards the entry of the baptism of Thomas on 22 April 1779, the vicar made a mistake in the entry; it was written as follows: Thomas, son of William and AOWSWORTHY; he then added Ann before the surname, but did not correct the spelling of the surname." (Online parish clerk)

[There was another Thomas NOSWORTHY baptized in Widecombe in the Moor on 16 February 1779, an illegitimate child of a Mary NOSWORTHY. It is not known what happened to him. No record of a burial of a Thomas has been found to date. A Mary NOSWORTHY married John NOSWORTHY in Widecombe on 9 March 1788. He was reportedly a sojourner to the parish and a sailor. Two children were baptized to them in Widecombe in the Moor: John in 1789 and Jemima in 1790. Whether or not this Mary was the same Mary who gave birth to Thomas baptized 16 February of 1779 is unknown. Anne Brooks
NOSWORTHY, Thomas (I90)
 
106 "Without a baptism record, Thomas's parents remain unproved. The 1841 census supports the liklihood that he belongs in this family group based on the fact that Blanch MATTHEWS, age 72, and Blanch MATTHEWS, age 27, were in his home, as do the witnesses at his marriage to Grace, James and Blanch MATTHEWS. Also, the inclusion of "Harvey" as a middle name for his daughter, Joanna, helps to support this theory. (Anne Brooks)

Thomas and Grace immigrated to Adelaide, Australia, arriving 29 Oct 1847, on board The Duchess of
Northumberland
, from London. (J. Kilford)

In recent years, Mr. MOORE became active in raising show birds, especially geese and chickens, and was one of the original members of the P.E.I. Feathered Fanciers Association.
